We have been thinking about Easter and different Easter traditions. We talked about what we like to do with our families at Easter.

Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk is an English traditional tale about Jack, a poor country boy,who trades the family cow for a handful of beans..

Little Raindrop

We are learning all about the weather and the story that follows a raindrop! "Have you ever wondered what happens to a raindrop when it falls from the sky?

This week we have shared the story, Mr Wolf’s Pancakes. You can watch the story by clicking on the Youtube link below....

Mr Wolf's Pancakes, by Jan Fearnley

Mr Wolf's Pancakes, by Jan Fearnley. Read aloud by Nigel Planer.

We have enjoyed making our own pancakes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. We made a list of ingredients that we needed to make some delicious pancakes. We helped to measure out and mix the ingredients before watching them cook in the pan. Once they were ready, we chose our favourite toppings from strawberries, blueberries, syrup, lemon juice and chocolate drops. They tasted delicious!

We investigated 3D shapes in maths. We learnt the names of the different shapes and explored making models using the different shapes. We could also sort different objects into the different 3D shapes.

To start the New Year we are focusing on the topic about animals and this will be evident in our weekly learning. Have a look at this week's story.

This week we are learning about and celebrating Chinese New Year!

We loved having a Chinese restaurant to end our week of Chinese New Year celebrations! We had rice, noodles, prawn crackers and a fortune cookie! We even tried to use chopsticks!

Story Time: "The Great Race: The Story of the Chinese Zodiac" by Dawn Casey

Join us for a story time reading of "The Great Race: The Story of the Chinese Zodiac" by Dawn Casey!

We enjoyed learning how to share equally in maths today! The tiger had baked some delicious cookies and needed to share them with the rat. We had to make sure that they both had an equal number of cookies!

We had great fun in PE dancing to Chinese music with streamers! We also played the drums while having a dragon parade!

Maths is fun!

This week we have been introduced to subtracting as taking away. We used objects to help us to solve the subtraction number sentences.

P.E. Balancing and travelling in different ways

After reading the story, “the tiger who came for tea”, we made our own sandwiches. We talked about what our favourite sandwich fillings were and what we could add to make them healthier. We chose which type of bread we wanted and which filling. We then thought about what we could add to make our sandwich even better, e.g. adding cucumber. We used knives safely and with good control to spread butter on the bread and then to cut our sandwich in half.
We then had our own little tea party and sat with our friends to enjoy eating our delicious sandwiches!

The Tiger Who Came To Tea - Kids Book Read aloud


We had great fun in P.E. this week!

Mad About Minibeasts!

The sun is in the sky and it's a lovely summer's day. The minibeasts have seen you and they want to come and play!

We enjoyed finding out how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. We sequenced the pictures and could explain how the caterpillar grows from an egg. We talked about how the caterpillar becomes a cocoon before growing into a beautiful butterfly.

We explored measuring and comparing the length of the different sized caterpillars. We used the cubes to match the size of the caterpillar. We then counted how many cubes long they were and wrote the number down. We could say which caterpillar was the biggest and which was the smallest.

We have looked at a range of different minibeasts. We sorted them into minibeasts which have legs and minibeasts which do not have legs. 

We asked our friends which minibeast was their favourite and we recorded the results in a table. We used the results to find out the most popular and least popular minibeast.

We used a range of junk materials and natural materials to create our own minibeast hotels.

Rumble in the Jungle

There's a rumble in the jungle, there's a whisper in the trees, the animals are waking up and rustling the leaves...

Look at some of the fun things we have been doing this week!

This week we have enjoyed reading the Gingerbread Man story!

Hello Yellow Day!


We came to school dressed in yellow to take part in Hello Yellow Day.

We shared the story, 'My Many Coloured Days', by Dr Seuss. This showed us how we can feel different colours on different days.

My Many Colored Days

We explored the theme of colours and emotions by creating and decorating colour squiggles and making colourful collages.

We talked about our favourite colours and which colours made us feel happy.smiley

Exploring Numicon

In maths this week we have been exploring Numicon shapes. We found out that we can count the number of holes on each shape and use them to represent numbers. We also matched the numbers to the correct numerals.

Autumn Walk


We had a great time learning about the season of Autumn. We talked about the different things we might see during Autumn. We then went for an Autumn walk around the school grounds to find signs of Autumn. We collected Autumn leaves, acorns and berries to make an Autumn display in our classroom.

We have enjoyed sharing the story 'Owl Babies' this week.

Owl Babies Picture Book Animation

We engaged in imaginative play using props from the story. We retold the story using the baby owls.

We sequenced pictures from the story and then listened carefully for the sounds we could hear in the words. We then used a sound mat to help us to record some of the initial sounds.

We have enjoyed sharing the story, 'Avocado Baby', this week. Look out for photos of all the fun things we have done!

Story Time Book 26 - Avocado Baby

We looked at a range of different food pictures and sorted them into healthy and unhealthy food.

We explored floating and sinking using different fruits and vegetables.

We look carefully at an avocado pear and described what it looked like and felt like. Then we tasted it on a cracker! I wonder if we can grow as strong as the avocado baby!

The Daily Mile


We enjoy taking part in the Daily Mile every day! We can walk, run or jog around our running track. It's keeping us fit and healthy too!
